The MDHA will be hosting a Mix and Mingle networking event from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. on January 27th, which is designed to give MDHA members the opportunity to connect with colleagues from around the province, as well as with the MDHA Board of Directors and staff.   Immediately following the networking event, at 10 a.m., Dr. Wenche Borgnakke will be presenting on Oral Systemic and Periodontics and Diabetes.  To view the full list of presenters, please click on this link,

All MDHA members are welcome to attend our Mix and Mingle event, however, you must be registered for the full convention in order to visit the trade show and attend the lectures.  If you do not have a registered attendee badge, you will not be eligible to enter the trade show, nor attend any of the presentations, including Dr. Borgnakke’s.
